Description

A well-balanced and complex Grand Cru Classé of Pauillac

The estate

In the land of Bages at the gates of Pauillac, Château Lynch-Bages is a property that has marked the history of the Médoc. While the Bages terroir has been known for its quality since the 16th century, it was only in the 18th that it became famous. With an Irishman by the name of Thomas Lynch at the helm of the estate, Château Lynch-Bages was recognised at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. The estate was acquired by the J-M Cazes family right after the Second World War. Château Lynch-Bages is today considered one of the most important references of the Pauillac appellation.

Constantly seeking excellence and innovation, Château Lynch-Bages carried out a new plot division in 2006, breaking down 90 original cadastal parcels into 180 to 200 sub-plots. The 2020 vintage was the first to be produced in the brand new infrastructures of Château Lynch-Bages. Designed by the architect Chien Chung (Didi) Pei, internationally renowned for his pure architectural style, this new vat room and its ageing cellar are state-of-the-art tools designed to magnify the terroir of this emblematic Pauillac property through a sterling vinification process.

The vineyard

This 2000 Château Lynch-Bages is a Pauillac wine that stems from a 90-hectare vineyard, resting on Garonne gravel.

Vinification and ageing

Manual harvest with sorting in the vineyard. The wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels, 70% of which are new.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (71%)
Merlot (16%)
Cabernet Franc (11%)
Petit Verdot (2%).


Château Lynch-Bages 2000: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

The wine is well balanced, well structured and harmonious. The 2000 vintage stands out due to its velvety notes of crème de cassis and tobacco leaf, complemented by cedar and graphite aromas. Still youthful on the palate, the finish is persistent.
